Miss Livy Spends Most of a Day with her Auny

Yes, I spelled that correctly, Auny. The name that my niece Livy has given me is Auny, not Auntie, not Tee Tee as she had once started to say. I am now Auny. And I love it! One day I got a chance to take Livy for most of an afternoon back to my home so that her Mommy (my sister) could catch a break to clean house, relax and get whatever done she wanted to get done. Honestly, she should just sleep when she gets that time, but she had stuff to do and so I was very happy […]

Spending Time Being Relaxed with Children

I am all about spending time with my kids. I think it’s important for every parent to get down to your child’s level and just be one in the same with them. I am not talking about playing necessarily, even just sitting back on the couch with the kids letting them ramble nonsense and you ramble nonsense back if there is a pause in between your child’s ramblings. This is a great way to teach your child how to communicate too. In case you haven’t already realized, I am that tricky parent, I am all about everything I do with […]

Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ for your Doggy {Review}

I am not the only one who benefits from being a blogger, Jenny the Pug is also being able to benefit from the product samplings this month! Recently we received a box of Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ for the sweet Pug in our life. When we adopted Jenny the Pug a couple of years back, we found out that her teeth were not taken care of very well. Right now it’s a choice of keeping up the best we can with her teeth because dental hygiene is important for your pets. Luckily, Jenny’s teeth issues are not anything negatively affecting her […]

One Day Wasted

Woke up with no internet. It was fun. That was yesterday. Went all day without internet because when they finally turned it back on  .. they did what they always do FORGOT TO REFRESH THE MODEM. I sat with nothing to do but twiddle my thumbs, lay with Jenny the Pug and attempt to work best I could from my iPhone. Sure I could have written some content in Word but when my brain is so annoyed at no internet, it doesn’t write very well. So I laid in bed. All day. Why? Because that was the best option to […]

Share your Love for Wendy’s Flatbread, Chance to Win Money #6secondsflat #happilyblended6 #spon

Thanks to Wendy’s for sponsoring today’s discussion Last weekend we had no kids. It was quiet in the house and there was not seven people running around trying to entertain and keep each other occupied, it was just us two adults. When it is just two adults in the household we are more open to the idea of eating out or at least ordering out and bringing it home to relax upon the couch to eat over a good movie and drink. This past weekend we decided to give Wendy’s flatbread a taste test as part of a campaign I […]

The Lost Cat and Pug Guard Dog #pug #kitty

Our first few nights in the new house we had a visitor, well he came over in broad daylight too… A super friendly beautiful kitty with thumbs.. so I believe that is called double pawed? Either way, he is adorable. The kids questioned feeding him and we said no way! Never feed a stray animal, he will keep coming back. The kids loved him, we loved him, but he was not our kitty… After a couple of days of this cat trying to get into our house, we noticed that he was over at the neighbors so I asked their […]

When You Give a Pug a Bone

The life of a pug seems pretty easy. This pug in particular has a pretty great life, she is loved by all of the kids and has become like another child to me. Never in a million years would I have thought that one day I would call a dog my “other kid” but that is how I truly feel about Jenny the Pug.  She even calls me Mama, okay maybe not for real, but I bet she does think it. The life of Jenny the Pug is pretty simple and straight forward. Mostly she enjoys eating and napping but […]

The Best Family Decision – To Have a Dog {giveaway}

When the boys were younger, they were considered my double diaper duty boys, because they are two years and six days apart. Each had to be changed almost simultaneously and it made for a busy lifestyle while also having a daughter who is four years older than the first born boy.  This was the time my children begged and pleaded for a dog, we decided that at that time there was no way, no how, I could have a dog. Years later, when the boys were out of diapers and all were heading to be in school, I realized that […]

Protect-A-Bed Making Pet Owners Happier Giveaway @Protect_A_Bed

Everyone loves their pet, right? Sometimes they even let their pet sleep on their bed, right? Well I know Jenny the Pug sleeps on my bed as well as my daughters bed whenever she can. While my dog doesn’t pee on my bed, she does lick and lick herself for hours on end it seems which leaves my sleep number mattress wet and uncomfortable.  I don’t have time to let my mattress air out before I try to lay down to slumber and I hate all of the fur and allergens that get on my bed from owning this bed […]

Jenny the Pug and her Silly-ness

I really never, ever thought that I would love a dog as much as I love my sweet Jenny the Pug. Sure I always wanted a pug, certainly preferred a black pug over the fawn but this sweet dog at age six is such the perfect fit for my family. Jenny the Pug has been getting fed by my four year old son, and it’s making her a somewhat naughty dog. Not so naughty that she will be on Santa’s naughty list, but naughty enough to the point where I can not eat at my recliner without her begging. As […]
